In California, mountain lions are at the top of the food chain and play critical roles in our natural ecosystems. Yet mountain lions themselves live a fragile existence. Dr. Quinton Martins will introduce us to the region's mountain lion population, represented by over a dozen GPS-tracked big cats, and offer tips for reducing the risk of conflict with pets and backyard livestock. Understand how you can coexist with the wildlife in your backyard and become an ambassador for the region's elusive top carnivore. Martins is the director of Living with Lions, Audubon Canyon Ranch's community conservation project centered around the North Bay mountain lion population. Martins is the former founder and CEO of the Cape Leopard Trust, a successful predator conservation NGO based in South Africa. He has over 20 years of field experience having worked in wilderness areas throughout much of Africa, Saudi Arabia and the U.S., and is considered a leading expert on leopards.
